We are excited watching this bathroom renovation in progress. With the exception of the toilet, everything has been relocated within the new design! The stand-up shower has been removed, as has the bathtub. All floor and wall tiling have been replaced by 12 x 24" porcelain tiles.

Removing a wall between the former kitchen and dining room has created an open, spacious and brighter living space. We can't wait to see the completed look!!!
We are excited watching the progress of this kitchen renovation! A wall dividing the kitchen and dining room has been removed to create a much larger, open kitchen space. A full-height wall of cabinets will provide loads of storage and a desk-type space. The former eating area in the kitchen is transforming into a casual sitting area, facing the patio door with a view into the fabulous garde
The entrance to this bathroom was formally from the main lobby/entrance area of the home. In redesigning the bathroom, the existing door was blocked off and a new door was positioned around the corner in a corridor, giving more direct access from the bedrooms and more privacy away from the main-entrance area. The tub was removed and replaced with a fully tiled wall shower. The toilet was

Cooking produces grease, moisture, heat and smoke that can damage cabinets and walls over time. The use of ventilation is imperative in protecting your cabinets and removing these cooking by-products from the air in your kitchen. Ventilation can be in the form of an updraft range hood or downdraft vent.
In the video below you can see us during out prep phase for a kitchen renovation in Sharon. There is a ton of planning involved when putting a kitchen together; organizing contractors, parts, ordering and working with schedules can all be very tricky to put together.
As you can see it's a bit of a puzzle to put together! Click on the video to start playback.
There were no actual structural alterations in this kitchen design by Kestle Interiors. The new fridge was positioned on an existing wall where a portable dishwasher had been, with the addition of a pantry unit and over-the fridge cabinets, utilizing this space much more efficiently than before. Full-height wall cabinets provide added storage.
After seemingly endless months of hard work but, in reality, relatively little time, our showroom renovation has been completed! We say "thank you" to all our customers for bearing with us during this time of transformation. It has often been a bit of an obstacle course to reach our designers!
While the majority of American kitchens have only one sink, the trend toward two is growing quickly in new construction and major remodels. Why would you possibly need two kitchen sinks — that is, if you are in the fortunate position to be able to afford this luxury? In a nutshell, for better kitchen workflow.
This kitchen had served the household well for 27 years -- but has recently undergone a brilliant metamorphosis!! By completely changing the layout of the room, adding a large amount of storage cabinetry, a prep area and undercabinet lighting, this kitchen is much more ergonomic and brighter than it was.

Bridget is in Sherbrooke, QC today attending a workshop hosted by Cuisine Ideale. This is providing an opportunity to be updated on product and software, as well as being introduced to the people behind Cuisine Ideale, the company who produces our cabinetry.
This is a neat little tool that can be used to draw the two portions of a countertop together and create leveling at the same time. Using suction and pressure, the installer can ensure the seam of each counter block is practically gone. Take a look at the video below to see how it works!

Our newest kitchen display that is currently in the works features solid maple, raised-panel doors, with simulated natural-maple melamine interiors. The drawers are dovetail constructed, with full extension and soft-close hinge action. The kitchen features a stainless-steel apron sink, with modern, square sinks, 10" deep.
We can now offer a high-gloss finished door/panel of lacquered melamine MDF. The door/panel is constructed of Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF), with certification CARBP2 for formaldehyde release, with a melamine covering on both sides, lacquered on the front side and edgeband.
This stunning kitchen is one of our most recently completed designs. The structural renovation was carried out with outstanding results by the homeowners. The kitchen was designed by Jon, cabinetry supplied by Cuisine Ideale and installation completed via our awesome contracting team.
